1-2:45 PM RACHAEL SHANNON CRAFTING CIRCLE
We will go through a list of different questions about relationship to body/ where our feelings about bodies come from, then have a discussion and/or craft about it. We have been embroidering body images on fabrics to be applied to pillows in the vestibule. A top-optional crafting circle fused with discussion.
3-4:45 PM KRIS GREY: Craft-Identified: a support group
In recent years many colleges, universities, and other institutions have removed the word craft from their titles often times replacing it with more academically legitimized words like “design”. In the wake of this craftaphobia, makers may be left feeling… well, lots of feelings. Or perhaps the craft/art divide has got you fired up? This group is open to craft-identified individuals and our allies to share feelings around these issues and more. Your facilitator, Dr. Justin Credible, initiates a safe craft-affirming environment for you to offer and receive support.

1-3 PM CAITLIN ROSE: MAPPING QUEER CRAFT
This workshop will function as a collaborative think tank of queer makers, craftivists, and thinkers to start to map the shared terrain between craft and queer. We will examine histories of both craft and queer, then move closer to the horizon of these two shifting spaces and unpack how they function in contemporary art practices. This isn’t about creating a hard definition of what queer craft is and can be but a formation of a lexicon to strengthen our art praxis and understanding of ourselves in the larger culture that ignores the importance of the queer handmade. Prepare yourself to excitingly talk about the social constructs of queer and craft as the other, queer strategies and gay aesthetics, and how craft provides a unique vehicle for queer world building.
3-5 PM ZEESY POWERS: How to make a Moving Image:
Anyone can make a movie, and anyone can make an animation. You just need access to electricity, some basic equipment, and an idea. In this workshop we’re going to make 2 kinds of moving image: a gif, and a video for YouTube. Bring your laptop, your phone, and/or your camera and whatever cables those things might need to connect to each other. Doesn’t matter how old these things are. If you don’t have any, don’t worry, well have some on hand. At the end of this workshop, you’ll have two short animations, as well as the basic skills you’ll need to make more complicated animations of your own.
5 – 7 PM BABYSKINGLOVE: BLESSED[BA]BY
Inspired by the reborn baby phenomenon, BabySkinGlove will host a make-your-own-baby craft circle. The baby will be made out of yarn blessed on site by BabySinGlove.

ONGOING READING & FILM SERIES @ LPV








THE RED COUCH SALON.

The only place to sit at Warhol's Silver Factory was the Red Couch. Originally found on the street by Billy Name, the Red Couch became the hub for long conversation about Art and Revolution. And when the factory was gone, the Red Couch returned to the street. And who knows, it may still be there....

The Red Couch Salon, curated and hosted by Justin Sayre (The Meeting*, Night of a Thousand Judy's) is a monthly reading and art series held at Le Petit Versailles, from June to September.

Like the Red Couch, it is set to provide a meeting place to bring new work and discussions, showcasing the work of emerging and established New York artists, but also become a space for experiments and deep conversations about Art in the changing landscape of New York.

The entire series is dedicated to the Legacy of Poet and Superstar, Taylor Mead.


A COLLECTIVE CINEMA at Le Petit Versailles, 346 East Houston Street

$5 suggested - Rain or shine!

Created in 1973, the Collective for Living Cinema was an outpost of experimental cinema located on White Street in Lower Manhattan. It regularly presented work by filmmakers such as Ken Jacobs, Johan van der Keuken, Yvonne Rainer, Christine Vachon, Dziga Vertov and many others who created films outside of the commercial mainstream. Annette Michelson pointed out that The Collective "attempted to break down distinctions between industrial film and avant-garde film, between films that form part of a classical canon and those which are on the margins or periphery of canonical taste." In the late 1980s, the Collective was forced to move from its 52 White Street location (due to legal and financial issues related to the building's certificate of occupancy and the NYC building codes for motion picture theaters) to a new space across the street. With rising costs, the gentrification of TriBeCa, and the debt incurred in creating a new theater, the Collective closed its doors in the early 1990s.

GARRIN BENFIELD

Returns to Le Petit Versailles for the fourth time since he debuted in our humble little garden on a balmy summer’s eve in 2011. His sound has been described as Freestyle Acoustic Rock. His music is a blend of moody, guitar driven rock and polyrhythmic groove all run through the filter of a very serious Singer/Songwriter. His talent shines through as a solo artist when he flat-picks his way through complicated and lightning-fast arrangements and also while he uses a Loop Station to create mesmerizing soundscapes upon which he lays blistering rock, blues and jazz licks, darkened by his extensive use of effect pedals.
In fewer words: Get into it.

Starts at 5PM.


A slow dance affair starts right after Garrin at LPV - Starts at 7PM

We encourage all of you to practice your rumba sways. From sounds, to visuals, to summer concoctions - we’ll get all your senses stimulated; Bring your hips, your lovers and your summer couture, for an early evening with the family.
Music by DJ Dandylion
Live Performances by Amber Martin, Justin Sayre, and Bruno G. Tavares
Video Art by Mr. Means Floral
Libations by Nemo

HI TIGER !!



  • Le Petit Versailles, 346 East Houston Street
  • Curators Kris Nuzzi and Sur Rodney (Sur) in conjunction with NOT OVER: 25 Year of Visual AIDS invite you to join Hi Tiger Saturday June 1st @ 9pm

    at Le Petit Versailles
    346 East Houston St. @ Avenue C
    NYC

    Their work is at once ethereal and hard-hitting, groovy and confrontational, and loaded with steamy politics and dramatics…it’s a brave, even fearless album…
    -Jakob Battick, Dispatch Magazine

    Hi Tiger was formed in August 2010 by visual artist, Derek Jackson. Like an accident you slow down to look at, they have been referred to as Art Punk, serious business of tragedy, and glamorous sex machines. Their post-punk debut album, "i love music", was recorded at Forest City Studio and released August 5th, 2011.

    In a set designed specifically for the exhibition NOT OVER, Hi Tiger is joined by Jacob Pitcher, of the band Contrapposto. The structured improvisation is titled "In Our Sick Society" and incorporates live mixing and beat mastering, vocals and triggered samples to create a sound that recalls 90's trip-hop... but way more spacey.

    Hi Tiger is Derek Jackson (vocals, keys) and Julian Heughan (mix master, beats).
